Detroit motor show could move to July or October

The annual Detroit motor show – or North American International Auto Show, as it's known officially – could move from its traditional January start date, according to reports from local media. Detroit News reports the Detroit Dealers Association wants to move the event, which has been shrinking in the shadow of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, to later in the year, likely in July or October.

Subaru Australia wants seven-seat Ascent, but it isn't happening

Subaru’s Ascent replaces the long-dead Tribeca atop its range, but don’t expect this Toyota Kluger and Mazda CX-9 rival on our shores any time soon, despite Subaru Australia’s wishes.

Porsche 911 Speedster spied again

Earlier this month Porsche revealed the 911 Speedster concept, created to celebrate the brand's 70th anniversary. It's based on a Carrera 4 Cabriolet, but uses the powertrain and mechanical package from the 911 GT3 track hero.
